Insider's spotlight

What are some social events your company does?

I originally started the DineNow program for selfish purposes... I just wanted to eat good food and spend time with my co-workers outside of the office because they were so awesome! It ended up blossoming into a great event we do monthly where we gather together at a delicious local spot. It's a great bonding experience.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Starting as a graphic design intern and now working as a front-end developer I can definitely attest to ChowNow being an amazing place to grow your career. I've been here a little more than 5 years, and am still growing constantly both personally and professionally.
